Ten Financial Films Worth Watching Available From Netflix

I’ve long said that Netflix is one of the best entertainment values out there. The ability to watch what you want with no commercials is wonderful. Internet streaming makes it even better.

    I listened to Maxed Out on CD, and it was quite eye-opening.

    Michael Moore films are anything but “politcally bent.” That is why they are so good. He speaks on behalf of the people and not a money-hungry political party. Don’t be so “brainwashed.” Your selections show you are on the right track…

    Any list about finances or the economy that contains any movie from Michael Moore, is a failure. He is the epitome of what the word “brainwashed” means. Ladies and gentlemen, lay off the Kool-Aid!

    Moore films are heavily bent. They approach interesting topics, but it is far too easy to build a particular view of the world and perpetuate truths thru cameras and interviews to propagate your viewpoint – and that’s what ‘Moore does. Sure, he’s not the only one, which is why you always have to take the info in these films at face value.
